We're so relieved Kevin Smith survived his "widowmaker" heart attack a couple weeks back!

His cardiologist told him he needed to go vegan AND lose 50 lbs — a tough haul for many, but this is the man who already dropped an impressive 85 just three years back.

On the latest episode of his Hollywood Babble-On podcast, the Clerks director explained how this time, he's using Penn Jillette's diet, which we know from the magician's book Presto! starts with two weeks of nothing but potatoes then adds in vegetables. Strict stuff.

"It's rather extreme, but it appeals to me because it dials in to certain personality traits."

The filmmaker beats the widowmaker!

Three days after surviving a near fatal heart attack, Kevin Smith has returned home from the hospital and is feeling better than ever!

The Clerks director gave fans an update on his health in an Instagram post on Wednesday, noting that his heart is "feeling good" and "getting more blood flow and oxygen than it has in a long time."

As we reported, Smith had a life saving operation this week after doctors discovered he had a 100% blockage of the left anterior descending artery.

The 47-year-old made an emergency trip to the hospital after struggling to breathe during a stand up set on Sunday. Doctors learned he had a heart attack terrifyingly known as the "widowmaker," and performed an operation to put a stent in.

In the meantime, Smith's social media pages have been showered with support from his friends and fans, which left the director feeling "touched."

Smith thanked his supporters for their messages and poignant stories in his post, particularly Chris Pratt "for the prayers." (A message to the godless haters who criticized the Christian actor for tweeting that he was "praying" for Smith.)

Speaking from his room in Glendale Adventist Hospital, he shared:

"I felt a little nauseous and then I tried to lay down on the floor. I wound up getting ill, like threw up, but mostly bile, so I just thought, like, you know, I got some bad milk."

But after he realized he was struggling to breathe, the Clerks director knew it was time to get some medical help.

When he arrived at Glendale Adventist, Smith bravely faced his two biggest fears after doctors explained they had to reach his left anterior descending (LAD) artery through his groin area:
